Other people say men are lucky because we’re low maintenance, but that doesn’t mean we don’t care about our health. We’re human too. We also need to look after ourselves!
One of the most overlooked topics is Prostate health. You’ll be surprised to find out that Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men next to skin cancer!
During the beginning, Prostate cancer shows no symptoms at all so early detection is the key. Getting a digital rectal exam and a prostate-specific antigen blood test would help determine if you’re at risk.
Prostate cancer begins when the prostate gland uncontrollably grows. This year, there have been about 174,650 new cases of Prostate cancer and 31,620 deaths. Statistics show that 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with this disease during his lifetime.
Even though this develops mainly in older men and is rare before the age of 40, it is best to be aware of this disease.
